Papa’s World – before the pandemic – Sarasota Fla. Loved this city! Just too far away!

Papa and Sherry – hugging a tree in Sarasota , Florida – we had considered moving here – but it was just too far to drive for family and friends and for us to go back home without flying.

Then the Pandemic hit and it never came back into the discussion again.

But – I really liked it here and if we came to Florida – this would be my first choice!

I do not remember the name of the garden but it is city center – and a beautiful place to walk!
We were among huge old growth trees – a lot of shade and a sort of tree – boardwalk that wound its way

in and through the tree branches!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – Sarasota Florida in the garden – with a exhibit for Salvadore Dali!

Papas World – Sarasota – Botanical Gardens

Marie Selby Botanical Gardens

We were invited to spend the day in Sarasota Florida.

And – we were scheduled to see the Botanical Gardens

I did not know what to expect

and was quite surprised at what unfolded

as we spent over two hours walking

a paradise of green lush gardens!

A tunnel of mangroves!
Every corner we rounded
brought something
unexpected!
A eye ball
with a waterfall
represented
a exhibit by
SALVADORE DALI
along with EGGS
and BUTTERFLIES!
Huge trees
with roots expanded outward
to better balance the tree
as there is nothing but sand
Anther SALVADORE DALI
tribute
LIPS!
A quiet water fall
just the sound
calming
and lush with vegetation
A piano
in the pond
A piano in the tree!

As we walked – I was amazed at just how everything just blended

into nature – how calming it was – and so shaded!

some not seen in 15 years!

You would never know you were in the middle of Sarasota!

And you would find yourself gazing out over the water!

Sarasota Bay
Benches at the end of a path
sit and lookout over the bay

I found myself in a calm state of mind

Hug a tree
with the one you admire
Seek shelter
Spread your wings as a butterfly!

It was a thing I had never considered to do

and now thankful I did!

Peace – love and happiness!

Papas World – Sarasota – jewel on the West Coast

Lido Beach
Sarasota Florida

I had heard of Sarasota – saw it on the Atlas –

Thought someday I shall visit –

Then – a friend invited us “OVER” from Winter Haven

where we had booked a AirBNB for a month!

So – we made the nearly two and one half hour drive

AND I WANT TO GO BACK !!!!!

Lido Beach
Very wide white sand beach

I was so mesmerized by the city itself –

that I did not take pictures until we walked the beach!

Right at the end of the main street
which the locals call the circle

We walked the main street – full of shops

both sides of the street

and all the places to sit down either outside

or inside and have breakfast – lunch and dinner!

Shorts – colorful shirts – music filled the air.

The vibe is what I noticed – and we could walk!

Right to the entrance of LIDO BEACH!

Sherry and her sister Debbie
with part of Sarasota in the back ground

The sand – does not burn your feet for some reason!

And is like powder in some spots

and a mixture of crushed shells in others.

The waves – hardly any at all –

Big expanse of sand bar –

with tidal pools that were warm from the sun!

Just gentle waves
and very easy to walk
The wide expanse of white sand beach

I found myself just calmed – no worries-

and wondering “HOW DO I GET BACK HERE”?

Birds taking a bath
they were not concerned
about us
and they would just
duck under the gentle waves
and wash themselves
so calming!
Sherry walking the beach
looking for shells
which she found
big ones!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

If you want – put this one on your bucket list

A must see and do
